The Warriors (13-4) took the first set 25-17. The Knights closed the gap in the second two sets but couldn't earn the win. They fell in sets two and three, 25-18 and 25-19.

"Wheaton was able to capitalize on our mistakes and controlled each set," Linn said.

Brianna Kreft had a team-leading five kills on the night for WCA, followed by Morgan Woodle with three. Kaitlyn Sanstead had 14 digs for the Knights' defense. Woodle had eight digs and Kaleigh Anderson had seven.

The Knights' overall record falls to 9-10 with a conference record of 2-5.
